I attended Ike Turner's funeral today. It was a fabulous celebration. Ike paid his dues for actions in his personal life.( MORE PUNISHMENT THAN ANY REGULAR JOE WOULD PAY! The media has made this ALL about Tina!
The services today were about IKE! He was a good person and a GREAT Musician! Today he was honered! Let's see who posts those possitive comments!
Tina had "no coment". I so understand why she didn't! Anything Tina would say, would have OUT SHINED Ike's Death. Possitive or negative, it would have been about Tina. I believe she needed to grieve in her own way and...THANK YOU TINA...she didn't want to outshine...IKE'S DAY!

I was very saddened by the death of Dan Fogelberg. Now his song, Same Old Lang Syne makes me cry even more than before. His songs were very touching and he told great stories.

I wrote a Christmas tribute to him called It'll Never Be the Same Old Lang Syne. I performed it "live" the other night at my Christmas CD release party.

If anyone wants to check it out, I posted it at my website under free mp3s:
